Yu-Chong Tai's research interests include MEMS technology, microsensors, microactuators, microstructure, MEMS systems, and MEMS science. Successfully developed MEMS devices in his lab include pressure sensors, shear-stress sensors, hot-wire anemometers, magnetic actuators, microphones, microvalves, micromotors, and so on. System-level MEMS research projects include integrated M3 (microelectronics + microsensors + microactuators) drag-reduction smart surface, flexible smart skin for the control unmanned aerial vehicles, and micro fluid delivery systems. He is also interested in MEMS sciences such as MEMS material (mechanical and thermal) properties, micro fluid mechanics, and micro/nano processing issues. Yu-Chong Tai is the director of the Caltech Micromachining Laboratory, which is a complete micromachining facility including a clean-room processing lab, a computer lab, and a measurement/testing lab. The facility is currently sponsoring more than 20 researchers (14 Ph.D. students among them) for micromachining.
